In a contingency environment, can appropriated funds be used to purchase used equipment? If so, can you name any sources?
This question primarily deals with funding. However, from a contracting perspective, I would recommend that you first accomplish a cost analysis determination to determine if a lease vs. buy is in the best interest in the government. Once accomplished, you will need to document your findings and rationale and present it to your contracting policy and procedures office and your legal advisor for approval and concurrence.
